Third-Party press conferences
Bookings for third-party press conferences are now open.
There will be two press conference rooms at AIDS 2018: one with a seating capacity of approximately 200; and one with a seating capacity of 80. Both will be equipped with four microphones for seated speakers (space for a maximum of eight speakers). Basic AV equipment will be provided free of charge.
The media centre and press conference rooms will be open for use between Monday, 23 July, and Friday, 27 July. The press conference rooms are located in G106-107 and G109, one floor above the media centre.
When not in use by conference organizers, press conference rooms will be available for use by third parties registered for the conference. This refers to all parties other than the conference organizers and includes NGOs, government bodies, international organizations or agencies, foundations and/or industry representatives.
Scheduling request submission
Booking requests for third-party press conferences can now be submitted via the online request form. Although there is no fixed submission deadline for third-party press conference applications, we advise you to submit your application before 24 June as last-minute requests may prove difficult to accommodate due to space limitations. Please note that scheduling of third-party press conferences is not guaranteed, but subject to availability. The organizer of each press conference handles all logistics, promotion and IT support.
AIDS 2018 cannot guarantee that all those requesting a press conference slot will be granted one. Only press conferences linked to the AIDS 2018 programme will be taken into consideration. When possible, they should take place on the same day as the relevant presentation.
Please note that all speakers and support staff must be registered to attend the conference, and that all media outreach is the responsibility of the group hosting the press conference.
To send a booking request, please read the full terms & conditions for the on-site press conference rooms and complete the online booking form below.
